you can buy at the entrance hall, or contact your hotel for the group tickets which are much cheaper. They are able to arrange you into a group of 10.
Hi All! I am in Lijiang at the moment and would like to go to this concert tomorrow. However, i have tried several times to contact the phone number informed without success. Would someone kindly answer me the following questions? a) What time does it start? b) How much is the price? c) Is it possible to buy tickets at the entrance? Thank you for your help.

There are a couple of shows a day but depending on the season. I caught the one at 11am. Tickets are available at the entrance, costs about Rmb200. Get there early as it can get really crowded as the amphitheater sits many.
